It’s impossible to not get excited about dental implants. Implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth and are now the standard of care. They are an effective solution and offer all the expected advantages.
Like real teeth, they require the same level of care. Although implants don’t decay, daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental checkups, are an imperative part of a regular program of dental care. While your dental cleanings will require some additional consideration, we will make sure your implants get the expert care they need in order to last a lifetime.
Until relatively recently, the available solutions to the problem of missing teeth didn’t address all the issues associated with the problem. Considering the extent of the number of people affected in the U.S. alone, 35 million, the best that could be done for patients was to offer some kind of bridge. Bridges present their own challenges, and they don’t address all the issues associated with the loss of teeth. More than half of the people missing teeth have endured the frustrations of dealing with bridges, but the use of implants is in the millions and growing daily as dentists embrace this promising technology. Here at The Toothbar, we are happy to be able to offer this solution to our patients.
Considering the extremely high success rate of the procedure, any negative considerations are a small price to pay for the overwhelmingly positive outcome. As with any surgical procedure, there is the possibility of infection. In addition, there can be some damage to adjacent areas including blood vessels or teeth. Although unlikely, there can be some problems with the sinus cavities for implants in the top jaw.
